i realize this is old news, but i love it so i'm gonna post it anyway; gareth pugh's and ruth hogben transformed the catwalk with this film showing his autumn/winter collection in paris 09. its typical of pugh's style; graphic and dramatic, and the medium allows him to be more playful with the clothes whilst portraying them the way he intends. (my favourite look at 4:22) ...i think it was said in a documentary the clothes initially came across as quite aggressive pieces, whereas the film exposes their protective side.
SHOWstudio's a great source of inspiration, and there's always something equally amazing at all of their exhibitions, such as their live, interactive fashion photography piece they had last year, where the viewer could talk to and direct the live model (or alternatively just chat them up).
...new films include a short documentary about photographer irving penn (1917-2009) as part of their project ' the fashion body'. nick knight and phylis posnick discuss his spontaneous working method and meticulous attention to detail with overwhelming results.
